University of Portsmouth tells students not to panic over results
WITH thousands of teenagers collecting their A-level results this Thursday, the city’s university has told youngsters not to panic if they don’t get the grades they hoped for.
While students may not have sat their exams this year, due to the coronoavirus pandemic, they will still be getting assessed results which will determine the next step in their futures.
The University of Portsmouth is expecting to be ‘very active’ in the Clearing process to help students secure places on its courses.
Deputy vice-chancellor, Bernie Topham, said: ‘We are expecting a busy Clearing and Adjustment period, with many students delaying decisions in the hope for greater clarity on what the new academic year will look like and others re-considering their future plans and opportunities.

The university’s Clearing hotline will be open from 9am to 5pm on Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4pm Friday. For any assistance students should call 023 9284 8081.
